- There are 20 miniature donkeys in need of forever homes.

Triple R Horse Rescue in Arizona announced it will be receiving a shipment of the adorable animals -- and are anxious to find families and animal lovers to step up and adopt.

More than 160 of the donkeys wound up at a Texas rescue after a "breeding situation" occurred, according to the rescue's president, Ken Bacher. About 20 of them are headed to the ranch in Cave Creek, Arizona as a result.

The donkeys come in a multitude of petite sizes and colors.

"Miniature donkeys are 'herd' animals," according to the National Miniature Donkey Association. "To avoid undue stress and loneliness, it is strongly recommended they not be kept singly but with another Miniature Donkey or other animal as a life-long friend."

So, maybe you should go for two.

Those interested in adopting a mini donkey should visit and fill out an adoption application. There is a $400 adoption fee for each animal.

Donkey owners will be chosen by lottery.
